Straw Weaving

Each year in our school first and fourth grade students participate in a feast.  The first graders are Pilgrims and the fourth grade students are the Native americans.  They gather together to share a snack, sing songs and bring a handmade gifts.  In art class the fourth grade students made straw weavings to wear to the feast.  The weavings took a long time but the kids love them.  They also worked on them in their classroom during snack or quiet reading time.  If you have never tried straw weaving before it's a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed it.  You could do 3 straws and make a bracelet.  That would be quick and still give students the chance to learn the weaving technique.
